of the second president john adams had a long political career which included, aside from his presidency, ten years of secretary of state, senator, congressmen and miniature. this is a little under an hour. i will start with a very simple question. was there a moment you said to yourself i need to write a biography of john quincy adams? >> yes, indeed, there was. a couple years ago when i ran out of any ideas on the founding fathers. others had written on washington, jefferson, madison, and i'd written on patrick henry, james monroe, james hancock. so i pulled out john f. kennedy's cal woods prize-winning book profiles in courage and their in chapter 1 was john quincy adams. i thought his name begins with a xu chapter 1. that's not the reason he was in chapter 1. john kennedy himself a war hero had listed these characters in order of the degree of courage, and he placed john quincy adams first among the most courageous senators and congressmen in american history. he was not just the sixth president of the united states. he was a congressman as well for 16 years and a center for four years. m

have to give some credit to those who followed and as john john -- john iskander pt there were those that did not follow. they altered the ultimate form of the particular agreement. you need to appoint a few people to do the negotiating, let them be the leader, and hope that others follow. as a minority house negotiators, i believe that by single most important contribution to that agreement in 1990 was that i did not get in the way of anybody doing important things. if the final negotiations have to be done at the top, and they have to have some support as john pointed out. the republican support fell apart in the house it's a kind of interesting insight, i would mention there's a suspicious that that may be again this year. that house negotiators may not have the full support on the republican side as we didn't have in 1990. i think john was right about the opposition bubbling up pretty much at the end of the process, and i really not a perceptive fellow, it didn't occur to me until -- perhaps a week before the first vote came up that we were getting in to trouble and that we had a
